Minestrone Tortellini Soup


2 tbsp                    olive oil
½                             white onion
2 tbsp                    celery salt
10                           baby carrots (sliced)
1 tbsp                    minced garlic
12 oz pkg             cheese tortellini (barilla makes the best – found at Walmart)
2 cans                    vegetable broth
1 jar                       spaghetti sauce (bertolli tomato basil is our favorite)
1 can                      diced tomatoes (tomato, oregano & basil is our favorite)
2 tsp                      Italian seasoning

Sauté onions, carrots, celery salt and garlic until the onion begin to sweat.
Add all remaining ingredients to a large (3qt) soup pot and stir until well mixed. Cook on high until the tortellini are done to your likeness.
